AYDS 1982 Commercial
Don't you love commercials from the 80s? Here's a commercial of AYDS. Ayds was an appetite-suppressant candy which enjoyed strong sales in the 1970s and early 1980s. It was available in chocolate, butterscotch or caramel flavors, and later a peanut butter flavor was introduced. The original packaging used the phrase "Ayds Reducing Plan vitamin and mineral Candy"; a later version used the phrase "appetite suppressant candy". Public awareness of the disease AIDS beginning around mid-1981 caused problems for the brand due to the similarity of names. Anyway check out this AYDS commercial which is a prime example of what has changed over the course of the last 20 years.
